COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2006
Poured a clear golden with little to no head. Fruity and full of other flavors and aromas that I canít put my finger on. A little nip of alcohol, but nothing to turn me away from this beer. The smoothness and high alcohol mixture can make a couple of these sneak up on you, but that isnít that bad of a thing in this case.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 I really liked this beer. It has a fruity nose and a thick golden color. The taste is just as the smell advertises....fruity and full of flavor. Itís a bit expensive for my everyday tastes, but is good to have every now and then. If you are a fan of beers that have a full and fruity flavor, check this one out.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2006
This is an interesting beer. Very strong fruity aroma.....possibly bananas, from the onset throughout the entire bottle. Pours into the tulip glass with a yellow-golden color, with thick white head and excellent lacing. Overall, this was a much fruitier beer than I care for, so I rated the flavor at only a 6. However, I can see how women or fans of lambics and similar beers would really enjoy this.

Beerdedone (2870) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, alcohol, citrus, and sweetness. Flavor is sweet, citrus, yeast, very smooth and refreshing.

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 19, 2006
Big foamy head, lovely blonde, light lovely aroma, good malty taste, even for me (not a big fan of malt, but I liked this!), vanilla notes, went down smooth and nice. Definitely buy again.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
Bottled BBE Dec 06. I really should rate more as I drink. Dazzlingly blond, as if a thousand points of light are caught in the body of the beer. A Keyser Soze head - like that, itís gone. Thereís a liquid citrus aroma that reaches into the very back of your nose - assertive though, not overwhelming. And that effervescent feel - esters fight to the fore, a slight cherry twang, a sorbet tingle, a longer ever-so-slight sourness, a sweet lick left around the lips. Iíve kept this back for a day when I could sit back and enjoy a great single bottle after a long shitty day - this was the day, that was the beer.

thornecb (4694) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours bright, hazy gold into a trappist glass. Sour earth and horseblanket aromas with a head that skims the surface. Fizzy, dry and full-bodied with an abrupt malt finish.

Rune (8923) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 17, 2006
330ml bottle bought at De Bier Tempel in Brussels in late February 05. Clear bright golden colour. White foam mostly diminishing. Light spicy and sweet aroma. Soft and firm mouthfeel. Fruity sweetness dominates the flavour with a slight hint of yeast in the finish. Alright, but too candy sugary for my taste (16.04.2006).

On tap at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: Dark golden with a solid white cover of foam. Big aroma of sugar. Strong sugary, banana, raisin, clove, flowers. Classic.
